This is the view from the patio out back. There is a bit of a gully, but it is quiet and I even have some ground to plant in, however I will most likely keep most everything in containers. This shot was taken around 3:30 in the afternoon, so we will have shade. It will be nice to sit out and enjoy the weather in our swivel rockers, and not the direct sunlight. Very good for my fair-skinned husband who burns easily in sunlight.
